Accelerate, the British Council and Australia Council collaboration

Posted on September 7, 2013


This week I was lucky enough to be invited to the reception that launched the next participants on the British Council/Australia Council collaborative project for indigenous arts leadership. Hosted at Ian Potter Art Museum with beautiful singing by Black Arm Band, I enjoyed hearing about the experiences of alumni of the scheme and meeting some of the new candidates about to depart on their UK trips and mentoring programs. This is a really strong project that reminds me of my time in London when positive discrimination was changing the face of arts management in the UK. It is a drop in the ocean here in Australia but it is quietly building into something that I hope will see some significant waves to come.
